Equipment builder ASUS has launched a laptop for tight budgets that will probably be popular with parents: the machine will sell for US$280 (CA$350). Plus, it’s been built tough, to withstand the hard-knock undergrad life. It comes with an 11.6-inch display, Windows 10 S (the limited version of Microsoft’s operating system), Intel’s latest “Apollo Lake” processor (dual-core Celeron N3350), 4 GB of DRAM and 64 GB of eMMC storage. Autonomy is said to be 11 hours. The VivoBook W202NA-YS02 is technically available as of now, but maybe late in time for this year’s return to school. Asus plans to follow-up with more expensive versions of the VivoBook W202, equipped with Windows 10 Home or Windows 10 Pro.
